ALASKA Smokejumper EMT Kit Boxed Up The Alaska Smokejumpers EMT kits are 70lbs. Due to the remote areas that we end up in and possible 24 hr. transport times are kits are more extensive than most. We have MAST pants which are not utilized much anymore. These are in hope of keeping a patient viable for longer periods of time, and are also used as splinting tools for lower extremity injuries. These have a strict methodology and once used the lead EMT must stay with the patient. Often the doctors at the hospital don’t know how to correctly take MAST pants off. We have flow conserving nasal cannulas to extend oxygen tank time.

Practice Jump EMT Kit. Contains all of the same components as the plane kit with the exception of the KED/SKED. These are replaced with the traditional backboard/Spider straps. This is due to the proximity of jump spots to the road system as well as ease and comfort.
Hopefully this gives insight into our kits in Alaska. I encourage you and all your personnel to go through one of our kits upon arriving for a boost in AK. The EMT Coordinator or any EMT will be more than happy to go through one of our kits with anyone interested. If you have any additional questions please call. (907) Thanks, Tony Marchini Alaska Smokejumpers EMT Coordinator
